Man finds secret tunnel under his house

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A large, century-old secret tunnel large enough to house a ‘grotto-type bathing area’ has been discovered buried underneath a Plymouth home.

Jake Brown was working on his new Georgian property in Emma Place when he realised one wall underneath his home had a different texture. After a spot of drilling, he was then able to make an opening large enough to fit his head through to take a closer look.

He found a boarded-up tunnel filled with evidence dating back to the early 1900s, and a newspaper suggesting it had been sealed for more than 50 years. Jake said: ‘Once I had made two holes, one for viewing, one for a torch, I peered through into the dark dusty expanse and realised that it was another cavern of sorts.

Beer tunnel. My grandmom had one in the main farmhouse. 

Wine can be kept in a cellar but beer and ale is better kept underground.

So the house had a cellar, lost in the mists of time '1964' i think the national trust will want to take control of it and the bit of newspaper will be on permanent display at the British museum.
